Could this be our first look at the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV pickup truck? It appears so. These images come to us courtesy of GM Authority. The prototype seen here appears to be a large full-size truck. The front-end is very sleek, does not have a traditional truck grille, and wears the Chevrolet “bow-tie” badge. What does the rest of the truck look like? It may just have a similar chassis and unibody cab/bed configuration that has been officially shown on the 2022 GMC Hummer EV truck. If you see the image below, you can make out the truck’s body-side. It does have that classic Chevy Avalanche look to it.
GM has already stated that Chevrolet will get an electric truck after the initial Hummer EV is launched. We expect the electric Chevy truck to reach production within 2-3 years from now. Exact timing has not been communicated yet. We also don’t know if it will wear the traditional Silverado name. Ford is currently working on an all-electric version of the F-150. The F-150 EV is supposed to reach production within the next 1.5 years (by the mid-2022, according to Ford).
Assuming this new Chevy electric truck shares the Hummer EV chassis, it may be capable of 3.0-second 0-60 MPH acceleration and 350+ miles of range.
I hope the electric Chevy truck will have a bed that is longer than 5-feet (currently available of the Hummer EV truck). The electric pickup truck will become popular if it has the same (or similar) utility of a current gas-powered pickup. This truck should have a 5.5-ft or a 6.5-ft bed and enough payload and towing capacity to keep up with a gas-powered counterparts.
